Dietary Supplement And Food Label

Dietary Supplement And Food Label Question

Question #1:

Emmi has been under a lot of stress and is concerned about her overall health.  She works nights at a local restaurant and takes a full course load during the day at a local community college. At lunch today, her friend Jessi suggested that she take Nutrimega supplements to help prevent colds, flu, and other illnesses and reduce her stress. Jessi said that she has been taking Nutrimega for several months and feels great.

Emmi was a little surprised to learn that a month’s supply of Nutrimega cost about $50.00, but she decided to buy the supplements, anyway.  The Nutrimega label recommends taking 2 or 3 tablets daily for health maintenance and 2-3 tablets every 3 hours at the first sign of illness.  When Emmi read the label on the bottle, she noted that each tablet contained the following nutrients (listed as % daily value): 33% Vitamin A (75% as preformed Vitamin A), 700% Vitamin C, 50% Zinc, and 10% Selenium.

If you were Emmi’s dietitian, health clinician, or nutritionist, would you recommend that Emmi use this product?

Are there any health risks associated with its use, considering the dosed recommended on the label for maintenance and illness and if so, what are they?

What alternative suggestions would give Emmi to help her maintain her overall health?

Question #2:

Report on an article that investigates the relationship between food and cancer. It must come from a peer reviewed journal and not a social media site. Give a brief summary of the research and its findings. Also, what was your opinion of the research?

According to Warwick-Booth et al. (2018), health education passes health information to people. On the other hand, health promotion is empowering people to have increased control over their health to improve it. Therefore, one can define health promotion education as a combination of different learning experiences by influencing a change of attitude and increasing knowledge to communities to promote their health (Warwick-Booth et al., 2018). Therefore, health education is part of the broader health promotion strategy. Health education plays various roles in health promotion. One of the roles of education health is that it helps build a capacity for behavior change in a community. In addition, health education helps deliver health information to a specific population concerning various health issues they face, e.g., health threats or benefits that they may face (Rural Health Information Hub, 2022).

According to Semachew (2018), the nursing process is a logical problem-solving technique used in identifying, averting, and treating various health problems. The nursing process has five steps: assessment, diagnosis, planning, implementation, and evaluation. The role of the nursing process in health education is that it helps develop critical thinking skills and knowledge to patients about their conditions so that they can reclaim their independence. For example, a patient having a diabetic condition will learn how to administer their injections and how to test their urine.

There are various contemporary issues that families experience globally. These issues involve society killer diseases or untreatable diseases. One of the contemporary issues is diabetes type two. There are various steps that a nurse would take to address diabetes type two in her education plan. The first step is assessing the learning needs of the patient. This step is important because it helps a nurse identify the knowledge gap that their patient has. The second step is to develop learning objectives. A nurse has to set goals that they intend to accomplish after educating diabetes type two patients. The next step is the implementation of patient teaching. This step involves passing knowledge to patients about diabetes type two. For example, a nurse can pass information about the patient’s diet. The next step involves evaluating the patient’s learning to determine whether it was successful. The final step is documenting the patient teaching and learning.

Differential Diagnoses

Differential Dx: Migraines (ICD-10-CM-G43.909) – Migraines are often described as severe headaches that trigger a throbbing pain or a pulsing sensation on one side of the head. The headaches are accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and aggravated sensitivities to light and sound, though the condition manifests in stages that include prodrome, aura, attack, and post-drome (Becker, 2017). Migraine attacks are severe since they may last for hours or days; hence they are a bother since they may impact a person’s daily routine of activities. The condition has no age discrimination since it affects patients of all ages (Becker, 2017). The patient presents with a throbbing headache that affects her temporal area of the head, and the headache rose in the past few days. The patient also portrays some signs and symptoms of the condition since she also stated having sensitivities to light and sound, as well as seizures.

Differential Dx: Cluster Headaches (ICD-10-CM-G44.009) – Cluster or cyclical headaches are severe since they occur in cyclical patterns. Cluster headaches wake a patient during the night with intense pain around one eye or one side of the head (Goadsby et al., 2018). The attacks may last between weeks and months, with remission periods when the headaches cease. In the remission sessions, the headaches tend to last between months and years. The headaches are rare, and they are not life-threatening. They manifest in the form of restlessness, pain in one side of the head or one eye, excessive tearing, redness of the eye on the affected side, pale skin, and runny nose (Goadsby et al., 2018). People with cluster headaches may also be affected by gazing. The differential will not be considered since the patient did not report a runny nose, swelling in the eye or redness in one eye, or dropping of an eyelid (Goadsby et al., 2018).

Differential DxViral Meningitis (ICD-10-CM-A87.9) – Viral meningitis is a type of meningitis caused by viruses’ infections, and it is the most common. Non-polio enteroviruses primarily cause the condition though it can also be caused by mumps virus, measles virus, influenza virus, and herpes virus (Brouwer & Van de Beek, 2017). The condition manifests in irritations, poor appetite, lethargy, fever, headache, nausea, vomiting, sleeping troubles, photophobia, and stiff neck (Brouwer & Van de Beek, 2017). The differential will be disregarded since the patient did not report neck stiffness, vomiting, lethargy, fever, or a history of sexually transmitted infections such as herpes virus.

Final Differential: Migraines (ICD-10-CM-G43.909) – The patient is affected by migraine since the signs and symptoms she presented most correlate to signs and symptoms of migraines (Becker, 2017). She presented with a severe headache that was accompanied by throbbing pain in her temporal section of the head (Becker, 2017). The lab tests affirmed the diagnoses of migraines since the blood chemistry and urinalyses reflected no infections or the presence of other comorbidities such as diabetes and thyroid challenges. Imaging studies reflected that the patient was not suffering from head injuries or brain infections.


DIAGNOSTIC LAB: The use of neuroimaging, CT, and MRI is depending on the patient’s medical history and physical examination.

Neuroimaging: If a patient has a severe headache, is over 40 years old, has start of headache with exertion, cough, or sexual activities, or has neurological impairment, neuroimaging should be considered (Cash et al., 2017). For an adult with a stable headache, no abnormal findings on examination, and no indication of seizure, neuroimaging will not be required (Cash et al., 2017).

Emergent CT- scan: When a patient complains of “the worst headache ever” and when focal neurological abnormalities, nuchal rigidity, or changed mental state are evident, an urgent CT scan without contrast should be obtained (Cash et al., 2017).

Laboratory test: Most patients with typical symptoms and a negative physical examination do not require a lab test. To rule out opioid and illicit substance abuse, a urine drug test may be recommended. CMP, CBC, TSH, and ESR are also recommended (Cash et al., 2017).


The patient should be administered with Sumatriptan 50mg when the symptoms of migraines start, such as headaches, nausea, or vomiting (UpToDate, 2020). If the condition’s symptoms persist, the patient should take a second tablet of the dosage after two hours. When taking another dose, the patient should consult with a physician. In 24 hours, one should not take more than 200mg of Sumatriptan medication since it is an overdose that would result in adverse conditions (UpToDate, 2020). Sumatriptan drug belongs to the class of selective serotonin receptor agonists drugs, which is effective in the control of migraines in mild to severe states (UpToDate, 2020). NSAIDs and Acetaminophens may be used to control migraines in mild to moderate states. The drug should not be taken with other medics of the selective serotonin receptor agonists class.

Encourage the patient to keep a headache diary that is accurate and current at all times. This diary will assist the patient in identifying migraine headache triggers. (Cash et al., 2017). The patient should be counselled to monitor her sleeping patterns since they may have resulted in the rise of migraines. She should exercise ample rest time. The patient should also embark on decreased caffeine use and go back to her exercise practice (McLaren, 2021). The patient should also be counselled to reduce stress in her life and embark on a healthy diet plan which will enable her maximum nutritional value from her meals (McLaren, 2021). The patient should also stick by her medications for an effective therapeutic effect.

FOLLOW-UP: Schedule a follow-up in two weeks to evaluate treatment effectiveness and to revise with her headache diary.

Referral: Refer her to neurology if the meds don’t help her headache or send her to the emergency room if she has any neurological or life-threatening signs and symptoms. (Cash et at., 2017).

Capstone Project Change Proposal Plan

Capstone Project Change Proposal Plan

Topic 9 DQ 2

Evidence-based practice (EBP) is an approach to healthcare that utilizes the most current research available in order to improve the health and safety of patients while reducing overall costs and variation in health outcomes (Black, et al., 2015). Introducing change, even evidence-based practice, is not always readily accepted by everyone and may require time for adjusting. Additionally, there may be barriers that may prevent successful implementation of evidence-based practice. Two main barriers to breastfeeding support provided by nurses to new mothers while in the hospital setting are organizational support and lack of motivation from staff members.

Support for the implementation of evidence-based practice is the primary barrier. Nurses need more than to just be given the information, shown how to implement and told to do it. The Knowledge, attitude towards implementing evidence-based practice, lack of resources and training, time mismanagement and lack of motivation are barriers to the implementation of evidence-based practice (Dagne & Beshah, 2021). Organizational support is vital; this can be done by assigning a lighter workload so that nurse can have sufficient time to help these mothers or an extra staff member. Having resource information at hand can also be useful so that nurse can provide this to mothers. Providing nurses with the tools they need to accomplish this practice will motivate nurses to partake in the practice.

Although breastfeeding is natural it may not come natural to all mothers. These mothers may come across challenges such as trouble latching, pain when latching, sore nipples, etc. The goal is to provide nurses with all the resources needed to help and provided these mothers with support they desperately need. But if the nurses are not provided support themselves, they will not be motivated to follow through and this change proposal will fail. Being short staffed, heavy workloads, lack of resources, insufficient time and unclear or unattainable high expectations can discourage nurses from implementing evidence-based practice.

Sustaining change can be difficult, as there are many variables that can affect implementation. One critical component of EBP is to ensure that practice change is part of an organization’s culture so it will continue to impact outcomes over time. Name two potential barriers that may prevent your EBP change proposal from continuing to obtain the same desired results 6 months to a year from now, and your strategies for overcoming these barriers.
